Israel launches series of retaliatory airstrikes at Iranian interests in Syria

Skier's camera captures Israel's Iron Dome intercepting missile

The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) shared a video on Twitter on Sunday that appears to show the Israeli Iron Dome missile defense system intercepting an incoming rocket over the heads of skiers at the Mount Hermon ski resort in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Russian Federation has called on Israel to stop carrying out "arbitrary' air strikes on Syrian territory, days after the Israeli Air Force targeted what Israel said were Iranian forces in the war-torn country".

"Israel will continue to block Iran's efforts to use Syria Lebanon and Gaza as forward bases for attacking Israel for the express objective which they openly declare - destroying Israel", Netanyahu said. The Israeli bombardment killed at least 21 people, including 12 members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitoring organization. He added that the recent Israeli airstrike had targeted not just Iranian forces allegedly stationed in Syria, but also the Arab Republic's contingency supporting them.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in wake of the statements that those who threaten Israel and vow to destroy it would bear "full responsibility".

Israeli firm ImageSat has published photos allegedly showing the extent of the damage done to the Damascus International Airport in the course of the latest Israeli air raids.

"We have started striking Iranian Quds targets in Syrian territory", a military statement said.

"Be Careful, Nancy!" Trump Warns Top Democrat Over Mexico Wall Deal
According to Politifact, several of Mr Trump's immigration-related proposals have either failed or are bogged down in the courts. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Sunday about the offer on CBS's "Face the Nation".

Syria's ambassador to the UN on Tuesday told the world body that his nation (presumably with the help of its Iranian allies) would attack Ben Gurion International Airport if Israel didn't stop bombing targets in the war-torn country.

"This is meant to work against Iranian missiles than can fly for thousands of miles", said Rubin. Russian Federation maintains that Israel did not notify it of the attack sufficiently in advance for the plane to distance itself from the scene of the strike.

Earlier on Wednesday, Netanyahu signalled that the Syria sorties would continue. Gen. Ronen Manelis said the missile had been fired by "an Iranian force from the Damascus area, from inside territory that [the Syrian government] promised would not host an Iranian presence".

"We're ready for the decisive war that will bring about Israel's disappearance from the earth".

The strikes have long caused friction between Israel and Russian Federation, which apart from Iran is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's other major foreign backer.
